PDM technology – Bluestar PLM specializes in Development, Sales and implementation of Product Lifecycle Management.
PDM technology is founded by Jørgen Schiønning Larsen, based on his PhD project (Efficiency improvement of the Construction work at Pedershaab machinery manufacturer, now HawkeyePedershaab), and the current product still spring from the original line of thoughts.
Jørgen Schiønning Larsen has been a resident at NOVI since the inauguration of the first buildings in 1989 and has actually incited and backed up the institution of NOVI. Jørgen initially started a one-man business and today PDM technology headquarters is based at NOVI.
Furthermore, the company has a development department based in The Czech Republic, also located in a Science Park, cooperating closely with the Technical University of Pilsen. In addition, PDM technology has established a sales- and support division in the US, based in Atlanta.
The goal of PDM Technology is to increase the efficiency and profitability of customers by integrating engineering with work processes at the production line through the implementation of our software solutions.
By migrating users to the ERP-platform, the gap between engineering and operations is eliminated. At the same time, this makes unproblematic sharing of data and documentation possible, whilst enabling the automatization of business processes across engineering- and manufacturing domains.
The clients range from medium-sized to large manufacturing companies worldwide within the following line of business; e.g. industrial and mechanical equipment, the auto industry, high tech & electronics, air traffic & defense, including medical equipment. The clients are global companies with world-wide branches.
Specific high-level knowledge does not come by itself, why a close cooperation with Aalborg University and other educational institutions is crucial to maintain at the forefront of the most recent software technologies. The location, near the university, is an advantage, as PDM Technology has students employed in study jobs and internships, and in fact, via this methodology, educate their own employees who usually stay with the company in a number of years.
Facts on PDM Technology
Since the foundation of the company in 1988, PDM Technology has been involved in the technological development of PLM for production companies. The PLM solution, Bluestar PLM, has followed the development from Axapta to AX platforms and now Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations (D365fO). Bluestar PLM is integrated within Microsoft Dynamics, from which Bluestar PLM incorporates product data, e.g. drawings, bills and 3D files from CAD systems, with manufacturing data in Dynamics.
Advantages of cooperating with NOVI, according to PDM technology
The high standard and flexibility related to facilities at NOVI, e.g office space, canteen, service, IT networks and meeting facilities are important as it allows us to focus on core tasks.
NOVI is an innovative Science Park where we can be inspired, share experiences and establish a fruitful collaboration with other technology- and knowledge companies. The presence of, for example, ‘Væksthuset’ (Business Incubator) and the Export Council provides us with easy access to qualitative sparring and counseling.
Being a resident at NOVI means:
- A sense of community
- Good facilities
- Administrative- and technical services
All things considered, this allows us to to focus on core tasks.
